In each of his astounding #1 New York Times bestsellers, Mark R. Levin's overlying patriotic mission has been to avert a devastating tragedy: The loss of the greatest republic known to mankind. But who stands to lose the most?

In modern America, the civil society is being steadily devoured by a ubiquitous federal government. But as the government grows into an increasingly authoritarian and centralized federal Leviathan, many parents continue to tolerate, if not enthusiastically champion, grievous public policies that threaten their children and successive generations with a grim future at the hands of a brazenly expanding and imploding entitlement state poised to burden them with massive debt, mediocre education, waves of immigration, and a deteriorating national defense.

Yet tyranny is not inevitable. In Federalist 51, James Madison explained with cautionary insight the essential balance between the civil society and governmental restraint: "In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."

This essential new book is, against all odds, a likeminded appeal to reason and audacity--one intended for all Americans but particularly the rising generation. Younger people must find the personal strength and will to break through the cycle of statist manipulation, unrelenting emotional overtures, and the pressure of groupthink, which are humbling, dispiriting, and absorbing them; to stand up against the heavy hand of centralized government, which if left unabated will assuredly condemn them to economic and societal calamity.

Levin calls for a new civil rights movement, one that will foster liberty and prosperity and cease the exploitation of young people by statist masterminds. He challenges the rising generation of younger Americans to awaken to the cause of their own salvation, asking: will you acquiesce to a government that overwhelmingly acts without constitutional foundation--or will you stand in your own defense so that yours and future generations can live in freedom?

It is scary that this somehow collected four stars. A reasonable analysis of the problem is followed by the most extreme right wing “The government is the problem” solutions.

Yuck. Mean-spirited itellectually dishonest nonsense. His ideas would make things worse, not better for young people e.g. the false claim that a minimum wage is a "job killer".
Don't waste your time on this.

All young people should read this book and then explore the reality of their situations today. With drastic changes in leadership, it might be possible to reverse things. Levin is right, the current Government is creating a very gloomy outlook for the young American of tomorrow. Good luck kids, it isn't going to be pretty.

I didn't rate this one. It is well written and true but to depressing so I didn't finish. I am old and hope to leave my kids something as my generation is robbing them.
